    Reliable rain protection at a great price.

    If you're looking for a reliable shell at an affordable price that you can pack along with you or wear on your hike in case of rain, the Columbia Women's Arcadia Rain Jacket will do just the trick. The jacket packs down into one of its hand pockets, so you'll be able to easily take it with you wherever you go. The jacket's Omni-Tech fabric and sealed seams provide waterproof protection, and the fabric lets your body moisture escape for breathable comfort when you're working up a sweat. The jacket's mesh lining enhances ventilation so you don't get overly clammy in warmer temperatures, or sweat-soaked and cold when it's chilly. Cinch down the adjustable hood and hem if you need extra protection, and protect small essentials from the elements in the secure, zippered hand pockets.

    • Mesh lining
    • Modern classic (regular) fit
    • Adjustable hood and hem
    • Zippered hand pockets
    • Packable into hand pocket

    It survived a rainy, cold Colorado visit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Small

    The price of this jacket made it feel like a steal. Then I figured for the price you get what you pay for ... wrong again. I wore this in May in Colorado when the temperatures ranged from a daytime high in the 60s/70s to 30s and pouring rain/snow. It's a great outer layer to repel moisture and keep you dry. I love the way the cuffs and the neckline are adjustable.
    I waited to write this review when I could break out this jacket again in the Northeast. It has now been through the wringer and still looks new. Really glad I made the purchase.

    Best Rain Coat EVER!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Small

    I had been searching for the perfect rain coat for quite some time, so I always read reviews before making a purchase. I believe the experiences people have with certain things (if honestly stated) really help others find what they are looking for. I wanted a waterproof jacket that was also breathable, and found this and about 99% of the reviews were amazing. I purchased, and I must say that this coat is absolutely perfect. It is waterproof, breathable, priced perfectly for the quality and looks amazing on. It fits true to size. I know that anyone who purchases this coat will be pleased. Thank you Columbia!

    Good rain jacket

    Nice, overall rain jacket and like the color. Fits true to size and nice velcro closings along zipper and wrists. Wish it was lined as it didn't keep me warm on a cold day (40F). I could see this being good for trips where are stray rain could happen as it packs up well. Hood is good and stays in place when wearing.

    So great, I got two!

    I love this jacket. It's lightweight and isn't too bulky, makes a decent windbreaker, and does a great job protecting from the rain. My favorite color is purple so the "inkling" is great. My mom saw it and loved it so I got her one too. The only thing I would caution is that it is lightweight, so you'll need to wear layers in the colder regions/months.

    Worth Every Penny

    This jacket is great! Used it on a 10 day fishing trip in northern Ontario and this jacket was a star! There were multiple days we where caught in a torrential downpour; this jacket kept me dry and I didn't sweat in it. The only thing I would have to say is it leaked a bit on the ends of the sleeves and it is not lined so unless it is warm make sure you layer up. I've also used it hiking multiple times and it still looks like new. Very durable. Great buy!

    Great but went down hill

    This jacket was amazing for a couple of months. After a few runs through the washer I noticed white flakes getting in my hair when I used the hood as well as on my phone when I took it out of the jacket. When I looked closely to the jacket the lining was coming apart. It does not protect from getting wet at all anymore.

    Great quality

    Great quality for the price, make note that it is just a shell and will not fair very well in cold weather without a sweatshirt or something additional under it. I got the razzle/plum and it was more pink-y then I thought but still a very nice color.

    A little pale.

    I bought the Geyser/Siberia and it honestly looks like the picture of Oceanic. I was really hoping for it to be a bit darker, but ah well. I just think it'd be safe to assume the picture is darker than the reality, because a fleece I bought from here and that was Columbia was also lighter than I expected.

    Other than that, it's great. I moved to NC and realized my insulated rain coat was absolutely horrible for those hot rainy days, so I decided to find a rain coat with as little lining as possible. This is that coat. I will say that the hood is very shallow, so your face won't be protected at all, probably even if you bend your head forward - there's just not enough of the hood to really do much besides keep the sides and back of your head dry. I don't really mind a wet face, so that's fine. For a rain coat, however, seems a bit ill-planned.

    "True to size" means fitted for me, so if you want to layer and use this rain jacket as a shield with fleece underneath or similar, go UP A SIZE.

    So, overall: colors are lighter than they appear in the pictures, hood is shallow for a rain jacket, and at your usual size it is likely to be fitted. It's very light, the lining is mesh (maybe a little rough, haven't worn it long enough), and even the lighter color is still eye-popping and pretty.

    good buy

    • Fit: True to size

    I bought a medium - red hibiscus. Haven't worn it yet, so can't review performance. But, the fit, feel and sizing of the jacket are great. I'm 5'7.5" and 130 lbs, and the medium was perfect. Fits comfortably, alone, but with ample room for another layer. Has a mesh lining, which feels nice. The red has a pink undertone (rant alert: I don't understand why manufacturers of outdoor wear never make women's items in warm, earth tone colors). Will try to follow up with review of performance.

    Great selection for our daughter for a summer iutdoir college lesson session. It has a side benefit, it keeps out the moving horde of insects following her around. Darn near bug proof outdoors.

    Exactly what we needed it for!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    This was for my daughter and the very next day we got caught in a rain storm. She loved the feel and it worked like a charm in the diverse weather. We highly recommend this jacket.

    Unanswered Question

    Does this jacket have the double zipper -- where you can zip up from the bottom as well as from the top? If not, can you pls. tell me which does. I need a lightweight hiking rain jacket with that feature. thx

    Unanswered Question

    is this jacket lined? I'm wondering how...

    is this jacket lined?

    I'm wondering how it is in the inside, im lookinf for something warm but also light, something in a rainy day i could use without feeling like a polar bear, but also feeling warm in the inside.. (maybe it is so much to ask for?)
